What a beautiful song by Chris Cornell. I like it much better than Skyfall or Writing's on the Wall.
For a movie released in 2006 it was a damn good (and faithful!) adaptation of the book which was published in 1953. It's probably my favorite Bond movie (Thunderball and From Russia With Love have serious nostalgia with me) and Martin Campbell has said he'd gladly return when they cast a new Bond, so I hope they take him up on that.
LOVE this movie. My favorite Bond flick of all 24.
If you're a fan of Bond you should be listening to the James Bonding podcast with Matt Gorley and Mira.
Yeah, GOAT for me too, by a LONG shot. I absolutely loved that the major confrontation between the Villain was a proxy war through a game of cards for the first part of the movie.
The parkour scene in the beginning being one of the along with being a fuckin' brilliant action scene.
The way they slowly expose pieces of Bonds character with the way he fucks with M is great.
Everything about it was just great, but most of all the plot was SOLID and made SENSE. Bond slowly followed clues to get the main villain, who he actually ended up losing too (great bit showing Bond is not indestructible and can make mistakes that get him killed) but then in a major plot twist of fate is saved.
I absolutely fucking hate when Bond films make plot leaps, and this plot was great. Nothing felt forced, it felt like a good mystery novel mixed with an action film.
Im kinda just rambling, but yeah, I was SO EXCITED for Bond films to be like this but I just haven't got the same vibe from any of them :(
The DVD for this movie is one of the only things I've ever begged my mom to buy me as a kid at age 9-11. I've seen the movie probably 15 times at least and it never gets old. Martin Campbell did what no other Bond director could and he is a legend in my book. I just hope that Daniel gets the right send off. A bombastic end to the bombastic entrance that he had in the great Casino Royale. This movie has everything you want from a great movie of this genre. The characters, actors, action , music, and story are all on point.
Eva Green 11 years later still talented than most people in the industry and still underrated.
My favorite as well. I love how it doesn't rely too much on action to remain entertaining throughout.
It's one of the best movies *of all time,* let alone Bond films. It's just a flawless movie.
My favourite action movie of all time, it's incredibly well directed and coherent. We go from action scene to action scene with just enough time in between to breathe up until the poker game which has it's own series of intense moments (bond getting poisoned, the stairwell fight) and Le chriffe is an excellent villain (Mads Mikkelsen kills it). The last 15 minutes were classic bond.
Can't quite call it my favourite Bond movie (that would be Skyfall) however it's really great and I'm about due to give it a rewatch.
11 years old, movie is perfection
Best Bond movie with the absolute dumbest poker scenes ever, from a poker perspective. I mean, flush loses to full house loses to bigger full house loses to straight flush? Daniel Craig was amazing and everything else about this movie was perfect.
But come on.
Loved this movie. Too bad every movie after it is straight up canned asshole.
Loved it. It's the definitive Bond for me, and one of my favorite movies period.
Goat Daniel Craig bond film, maybe Skyfall topped it but Idk
Casino Royale was absolutely a fantastic film, and its such a shame that the follow up Craig bond films have been so lackluster. Quantum of Solace was hurt by the writer’s strike, ending up with a stupid plot. Skyfall was better, but still wasn’t as good as Casino Royale, once again with a bad plot from the villain (though Roger Deakins did a great job with the cinematography). Spectre was also just extremely underwhelming with ridiculous escapes for Bond and Waltz’ Blofeld being so cheesy.
Casino Royale, though, was epic
my favorite 007 films
Goldfinger (1964) You Only Live Twice (1967) Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) A View to a Kill (1985)
Licence to Kill (1989)
GoldenEye (1995) Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
Casino Royale (2006) Skyfall (2012) Spectre (2015)
I loved it, but my favorites are Goldfinger and Moonraker
